A wonderful moment

Last year when I first joined the forum I wrote how an unkind remark can actually spur us on to lose weight We were at a neighbours for dinner one evening when the conversation got round to pets I said we were thinking about getting a dog This neighbour without hesitation said" Oh that will be great you can lose your weight by walking it "I was so hurt as I had never mentioned my weight

Well this afternoon as we pulled up the drive she called over and came to chat and said "Looks like you have lost loads of weight you look fantastic I wish I could lose it "I can honestly say hand on heart she is bigger than me

I feel brilliant this evening as she is very blunt and wouldn't have said it if she didn't think it

Yippppeeee ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰

  • You showed her how fabulous you can look, well done!

  • Thanks I feel so happy and like "I've shown her"๐Ÿ‘

  • Tell her to get a dog lol

  • Well she has got one so obviously it's not working lol ๐Ÿ˜‚

  • lol :D

  • I think I remember your original post and thinking how rude that comment was, so well done for turning it into a positive and also well done to your neighbour, she's proved she's not just mean mouthed by being able to give nice complimantry comments too!

  • Thanks Caz yes maybe this a side of her that I haven't seen x

  • Lovely to read your post Cat33

    I know you look amazing I can just tell by reading between your lines. Keep going my friend. Xx

  • Awww thank you so much xx

  • What a lovely outcome. Going forward is always the best way to go. Bless. โ›ง๐Ÿ˜Š

  • Thank you How are you doing miss you x

  • Love the fact that you sound so strong. Full of life and going forward.

    few ups and downs here at the moment after flu and so tired with the aftermath. But still happy and love this forum.

    Onwards and downwards as someone says. ๐Ÿ˜Šโ›ง๐Ÿ˜Šx

  • Flu really pulls you down doesn't it Hope you feel 100% very soon

    Thanks for your kind words

    Yes love this forum it has made a huge difference to me xx

  • Yessss! Well done you.

  • Thank you it was all worth it ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Well done on turning a negative into a positive. She probably didn't mean to offend.. as she has noticed you loss and complimented you on your success. Well done on both counts... Actions speak louder than words... ๐ŸŽ‰

  • Thanks for you nice reply xx

  • This reminds me of the saying 'Everyone has a fat friend. If you haven't it must be you' :) x

  • That's great ๐Ÿ˜‚

  • I salute you! Your dog's to!!! ๐Ÿšถ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿ‘‘๐Ÿ•๐Ÿถ๐Ÿ€

  • Thanks George we still haven't got our dog but I lost the weight and I showed her ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜‚๐ŸŽ‰

  • I too remember your original post Cat.

    What a lovely compliment and well done ๐Ÿ’œ

  • Thank you it feels good xx

  • I feel your pain, in the last fortnight I had three people be "brutally honest" about my weight, gutted, I have to say I was extremely upset, on the plus side close family member really supporting and encouraging me, even exercising with me. Determined to succeed.๐Ÿค—

  • What is the matter with people that they think it's ok to say what they like Im so sorry you had that upset The only time I would ever comment about someone's weight was if they asked me to be really honest and wanted my opinion even then I would find that very hard to do My son suffered from bulimia when he was younger so I know the harm it can do too

    Glad you have a lovely supportive family that's really great

    I guess we have to pity these people who don't know how to be kind

    My neighbour then made a silly joke about me having to use a wheelchair at the moment so I'm glad I'm not her ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

  • Thanks Cat, appreciate your kind words, onwards and upwards. ๐Ÿค—

  • Yes onwards and upwards we are the better people ๐Ÿ˜‰
